For some reason I hesitate to listen to some songs, like most of the songs on Polka Party! or Even Worse. But when I do listen to them, they're usually kinda good, like:
Here's Johnny!
You Make Me
Mr. Popeil (yeah kinda surprising how I've just now listened to it :imstupid: )
Waffle King
Plumbing Song
Taco Grande
Airline Amy (now one of my favorite songs)
...it's time to let your babies grow up to be cowboys, it's time to let the bedbugs bite...

The Plumbing Song and Mr. Frump In The Iron Lung are the first two that come to mind. Stuff like I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead and Taco Grande are going to take even longer to appreciate, I believe.

While "Toothless People" has grown on me over the years, I still feel it weighs down "Polka Party".

For me it would be Trapped In The Drive-Thru. When this came out in 2006, my sister and her friend used to play this all the time. They were like, "dude, come watch this you'll love it". But in all honesty the first time I heard Trapped In The Drive-Thru I absolutely hated it. I always complained how I lost 10 minutes of my life that I'd never get back, but now it's one of my favorite Weird Al songs. Just goes to show that things do grow on you over time. Haha

Also Taco Grande but I still don't like it as much as the others

It's All About the Pentiums. When I was really young, it was just loud and noisy. Once I was old enough to pay attention to the lyrics, I loved it and still do!

For me it's Bob, once I learned that the lyrics were palindromes. As a kid when I didn't realize that, I had no idea what the song was about and therefore had no interest in it. Now I give it all the props

I've recently started liking Slime Creatures from Outer Space a bit more than I used to. Also She Never Told Me She Was a Mime.

Skipper Dan is one that I wasn't too fond of until Alpacolypse came out. When it was just part of Internet Leaks, I felt it was okay, but when it was on an actual album, I found myself enjoying it a lot more.
